Can anyone help with the following:
- OS: Windows 8 with VT-X activated (12G RAM)
- VMWare version: VMWare Workstation 12 Player (12.1.1 build-3770994)
- 7-Zip 16.02
- Cloudera Quickstart for CDH 5.7 (VMWare)
Issue: Unzipped with 7-Zip in Windows 8, then tried to open with VMWare but got error message: cannot open internal error. However, if I unzipped with 7-Zip in a Windows 7 machine first (same 7-Zip version), then copy the unzipped folder to the same Windows 8 machine used before, it can then be openned successfully.
any errors during the unpack?
Thanks for your reply.
No, I do not get any error message from 7-zip during unpack in Windows 8. As for VMWare the only error message I got is "Failed to open virtual machine: Internal error." and I cannot find any log files.
how about using the Windows built in unzip utility?
Does this work?
Yes unzipping with the Win 8 built in unzip utility does work. So in my case, I either have to use 7-Zip to unzip in Windows 7 first or use the built in unzip utility for it to work.
As a side note, unzip with rar does not work either.
Thanks a lot for your help.
